    I have an iPhone 1st gen with a busted screen. If the iPad has the same OS and thinks it has a camera then I would think you could wire the iPhone camera into the iPad. Any thoughts? I know you can use the iPhone as a wireless camera but I'd rather use it with native apps like Hipstamatic and without having two devices to wrangle.
    Thanks,
    Kev

    Yeah well i know you can easily get the camera app onto any os, and if you have the technological expertise to connect the camera, then im sure it will work.

    yeah, the ipad firmware probably doesn't have the requirements for a camera

    It's kinda impossible.
    This doesn't have anything to do with the Software part at all.
    If the hardware part wasn't supposed to have a camera,you can't make it have one.
